Illinois faces a teacher problem - not from having too few, but too many.
A new report shows that during the 2010 school year, nearly 10,000 Illinois college grads earned elementary education degrees. But there were just 1,000 job openings.
The author of the report is Education Week's Stephen Sawchuk, who said universities are responding by counseling education students. The sessions offer advice and work as a filter.
““We don't have a bar exam for teachers like the way we do in law,” Sawchuk said.
